February 3, 2022 (TORONTO, ONTARIO) – Global sports, media and entertainment organization OverActive Media (“OverActive” or the “Company”) (TSXV:OAM) (OTCQB:OAMCF) announces Nobis, premium Canadian outwear brand, as the Official Outerwear Partner for OverActive’s Canadian professional esports teams, Toronto Ultra and Toronto Defiant. The new partnership bridges the gap between luxury retail and the world of esports, enabling both brands to tap into an expanded consumer and fan base.

“We’re proud to kick off the 2022 season by announcing Nobis as our first partner in the luxury retail space, bringing with them global recognition and presence in the fashion marketplace,” said Tyler Keenan, Vice President, Global Partnerships, OverActive Media. “Nobis joins our ever-evolving roster of partners, further reinforcing the value brands see in the esports industry, particularly in connecting with today’s generation of fans.”

“This unique partnership with OverActive Media stems from a shared passion and desire to strive for excellence which is heavily rooted in our brand DNA,” said Kevin Au-Yeung and Robin Yates, Founders, Nobis. “We couldn’t help but think of the authentic synergy between the two partners that would not only support our communities but redefine the future of fashion, sports, and entertainment.”

As presenting partner of Opening Weekend (February 4-6) and Stage I, the Nobis brand will come to life through Toronto Ultra team and player content, product integration and digital-first activations that engage the passionate fan community. The team, which celebrated an incredible season in 2021 securing a second-place finish at the Call of Duty League Championship Weekend, consists of the same starting roster who most recently showcased their talent winning the pre-season Kickoff Classic. The Toronto Defiant aspects of the partnership will launch in the spring, in line with the start of the 2022 Overwatch League season. ​

“Much like Nobis, we’re here to make a bold statement. Heading into the 2022 season, we have our sights set on the Championship and we’re unapologetic about it,” said Jamie “Insight” Craven, Toronto Ultra Player. “As Canada’s Call of Duty League team, we value the opportunity to wear jackets that combine fashion and function to help us stay warm as we live, train and compete in Toronto.”

Building on the anticipation from the fan community, additional excitement will be generated leading into the 2022 Call of Duty League season through:

  • A refreshed look and feel of all visual treatments around Toronto Ultra
  • A hype video featured across Toronto Ultra channels and played as a team intro before every matchup
  • Season two of Bell Presents The Blueprint, a docuseries that captures Toronto Ultra’s journey throughout the year
  • The launch of Toronto Ultra branded in-game team packs
